's been very grateful how the bushes have been. president george w. bush have stayed largely on the sidelines. i don't need to play the critic. i think he struck up a pretty good relationship with george h. w. bush. so the relationship with clinton is prickly and complicated. chris: it is an interesting friendship-rivalry. before we break, the famously close relationship between the bush and bill clinton didn't start out so swimingly. clinton was flummox at al gore keeping him at a distance because of the lewinsky matter. but he couldn't resist spouting off. he held out a texas twang and gave his best bush impression. i'm a governor, my daddy was president. i own a baseball team. but al gore was right in using the lewinsky issue. >> now if he decides he can't help himself and starts campaigning against me, the shadow returns. bill: the shadow. we learned when book visited the white house after the recount of 2000, he asked clinton if that shadow offended him and he gave him a pass. and of course clinton became close to george bush 41 and the family. they consider clinton a br

republican colleagues -- stop whining. >>> in "parade" magazine, former president, george w. bush, said he doesn't like the rigidity of the anti-tax pledge, grover norquist has convinced republicans to sign. in a response, norquist, in a "huffington post" interview referenced bush's infamous quote -- read my lips, no new taxes. said people don't like when politicians lie to them. >>> the tampa bay "times" reports that debra wasserman schultz said she is thinking of running for governor in 2014. >>> jill stein will be running against mitt romney again, and president obama for the first time as the 2012 green party presidential candidate. in 2002, stein was one of the candidates running against romney when he was elected massachusetts governor. >>> politico reporting presidential candidate ron paul suffered a big setback at this weekend's nebraska republican convention. he didn't get a plurality of delegate slots, which means paul's name will not be officially nominated at the gop convention in tampa next month. and "newsweek" says former alaska sarah palin with no role at the upcoming repub

h.w. bush and in 2004 by george w. bush against john kerry, the swift boating. all three of these politicians come from massachusetts. i wonder if it's something in the water there. but what you're seeing is very carefully constructed box. there are small nails that go into the box and there's some big rivets that go in there. the small nails are things like this controversy the last three or four days of whether he was -- whether romney was in charge of bain capital from 1999 to 2002, but the biggest piece of this argument are the tax returns. romney is going to be hammered on these tax returns until he releases them, and a number of republicans are now saying that. >> let me show you also the way the romney campaign has counter-attacked because they have released an ad featuring journalists. watch this. >> when the president was elected, he talked about hope and change. whatever happened to hope and change? now it seems he's just coming right out of the box with these old-fashioned negative ads. >> by starting negative, by going extremely tough and extremely hard, looki

, let me go to you. when you look at the record, president obama released 12 years. george w. bush, eight years. george romney his own father, 12 years. and when you hear this raise to the romney campaign he's been inaccurately saying teresa heinz kerry didn't releez her taxes in 2004. let me show you what he says about mrs. kerry. >> john kerry ran for president. his wife who has hundreds of millions of dollars, she never released her tax returns. somehow this wasn't an issue. >> now, i might add the kerry campaign -- not the campaign but his office, he's not running anymore. came back with this. the romney campaign needs to stop getting their facts wrong. mitt romney ought to speak for himself rather than making inaccurate comments about teresa. it's interesting to me, erin. first he was saying kerry only put out two years and it ended up being five. he's trying to do everything he can to deflect from answering. why he doesn't do what moes people have done. >> well, remember also, teresa heinz kerry didn't run for president. john kerry did. and mitt romney is running for presiden

carter, president reagan, president george h.w. bush, president clinton, president george w. bush. none of these presidents were treated like this, none of them were by either republicans or democrats. somehow this president is considered different. we have seen everyone from chief justice john roberts who was appointed by a republican president to the nonpartisan american bar association urging the senate to vote on qualified judicial nominees. they are able to administer justice for the american public. sadly, republicans insist on being the party of no. but the american people and the overburdened federal courts need qualified justices to administer justice in our federal courts, not the perpetuation of extended numerous vacancies. we extend the number of vacancies even as the population of this country increases. today, vacancies on the federal courts are more than two and a half times as many as they were on this day during the first term of president bush. today there are still 78 vacancies. there have been -- because of the delays caused by republicans, there has actually been an

is the former deputy assistant to -- former president george w. bush, and dick harpootlian is chairman of the south carolina democratic party. i mean, the past three days the news headlines are replete with did mitt romney have operational control of bain capital from 1999 to 2002, and does barack obama owe mitt romney an apology for some senior aide saying that he might have committed a felony if -- i mean, both sides, you tell me, brad, i'm -- there's such a turnoff, both sides, the way they, the way they run this race it's -- the american people are disgusted with this kind of politics. am i wrong? >> no, you're absolutely right. i think the american people want to get onto the real issues at hand, and either the president or mitt romney are actually addressing those issues. but let's face it, obama has invoked a 3-d strategy; district away from your own destructive policies, distort romney's record and divide the american people, rich against poor. this strategy is only useful when an incumbent doesn't have a record to stand on, to be hopeful on and to herald. and romney's letting

remembers, george w. bush pulled away from john kerry. it was actually very tight before that as you see from this nbc news numbers, and once bush pulled away in late august and the very first week of september, he never looked back. this idea that no one's paying attention is sometimes disproven by the fact that if you get branded with maybe not the details, but the notion that you're not being straight, you're not trustworthy or the thing you're running on turns out to be bankrupt and you have to run from it, right, does that have a risk that by the time the conventions come it's too late for mitt romney? >> if i recall correctly, karl rove has always said he beat john kerry in like the spring of 2004, when they were hammering him with ads, where they created perception of him as an elite foppish flip-flopper. these earlier perceptions even if you're not paying attention can be very powerful. people do, are like tuned in. they do have it in the background. they understand something about bain and swiss bank account and in some ways it can be even more effective if it's kind of vague an

will give it a shot. legislation signed into law by president george w. bush in 2006, that i and others worked on, requires at least four members of the nine members of the board of governors have experience managing large organizations, and aside co- authored the legislation, our goal with this provision was to encourage the president to send nominees to the board with relevant business experience, something that was sorely lacking on the body at the time. we have some governors with business experience, but not as much as we hoped to have when we were drafting the 2006 law. could you share your thoughts on the qualification criteria for the board and what you think w
